Bad,Very Bad

So let's take the first chapters - they are pretty fine and funny to read . And then when the manga continue going on ,it's getting only worse . The characters are boring and annouing ,the plot is meaningless and the bad guys are just lame . If you want to compare it to One Piece ,please don't . One Piece is a masterpiece and Fairy Tail is just BAD very bad .
I don't recommand you to read the manga ,but if you love stupid mangas without a point ,go for it.

People say to "give it a chance without comparing it to one piece" but even if you do that the storytelling just sucks. I especially despise the fighting scenes. It has it's moments though and the humor is good but other than that it has nothing really going for it. The friendship theme is portrayed pretty shallow, though the idea in itself is good.

EDIT: so I watched the anime and for some reason I like it better than the manga, anyway. ( maybe something with putting it into motion?) The storyline is still bad but I get the emotions better in the voice acting than with the reading so I get attached to the characters more. Same with the action scenes but of course shonen action gets better with actual motion. It's not the best but I like it. Good luck mangaka!

The series jumps from arc to arc with no real plot. Power up then beat bad guy, power up then beat bad guy: that's basically what this series is. Read this series if you have nothing better else to read.

for me. it's really a great manga. coz it's a lot of fun and Natsu's a very funny guy. And my classmates really love it too. And sometimes, they're making me sick, coz they always talk about it all day long. before class, during snack time, lunch break, after class and even when we go home... it sometimes makes me irritated, but it's a lot fun coz the story itself is really awesome, and really amazing..,,,,.... but sometimes the story goes not so nice.. that's why , I look for another manga series. But I admit it, lot of people- kids, boys, girls, and even though adults, really like it too. But, its sometimes a kind of weirdo, coz maybe i'm a bit bored with it...
I really like it too. coz it makes me happy, and it's really funny.

I really enjoy this series. It has many good qualities, from amazing powers, to exotic locations, to unique and interesting characters. I disagree that this is only a fight manga designed for teenagers, I'm in my twenties and I still like it. I've yet to read a story arc that wasn't important to the story, be it for the development of key characters or to the ultimate evil that is hinted at several times. If you're looking for a good action adventure story with a healthy dash of comedy then look no further. If its not for you, then fine just don't be a jerk about it

Look...just because you don't like something doesn't mean its bad. You might say 'generic' this or 'no plot' that but truth is....this manga is good. Sure its arc based and its echhi but hell I like it. It is an 'echhi' manga, if you don't like echhi then don't read it!! Simple isn't it lol. I'm sure most other fans of this manga agree with me as well.

This manga is a very enjoyable - it never tries to be something its not by being too serious and plot line is a slow trickle that's mixed in with the other story arcs. It might be a mixture of all things 'shounen' but that just makes it great since its all done really well. Its not the best but if you like magic, friendship, action and a whole lot of fun then this the manga for you. If not, read Berserk or Ubel Blatt since you're clearly not the demographic.

I really like Hiro Mashima's artwork, it's good and the characters are good at their own way. But what I don't like is that the story isn't going anywhere. Some arcs are good and entertaining but I feel like it hasn't moved foward. Or it's moving really too slow. And theme is quite same in all arcs. Well its told in differend ways but still it's repeating the same pattern.

Where is Igneel? And when exactly Natsu is going to seach him? Isn't that what the story is about? Or have I understood it wrong..or then there is no plot at all.

But still it is fun and entertaining to read it, and like I said, I like the characters and the artwork is really good. And actually I'm looking foward to see what happens next and what happens to Lucy. But I hope it's something good.

I think i'll just repeat what everyone else said :/
ok, so, i dont like this manga! want to know why? then continue reading this comment:

1) Plot: What's the plot? This manga has no plot at all! It's as if the characters are doing whatever they want, whenever they want to.

2) characters: I still think that Natsu is a rip off of Luffy. Lucy is just fanservice doll with big breasts and innapropriate clothes which get ripped after some time bigrazz Her poses are annoying! at first i thought she was a good character as i found her extremely cute but i was wrong. now, Gray Fullbuster, he is a bit of fanservice guy as, i dont know how, he never has a shirt on bigrazz And all the female characters (almost all except Wendy) have big breasts! i dont have a problem with that but they could AT LEAST cover them well bigrazz they always let a part of the breasts out. i know, there is that kind of problem in almost all mangas but not all the characters have the same problems bigrazz geez!

3) So-called friendship: Like almost everyone said, they depend on friendship too much!
Bad guy comes
Natsu tries to defeat him but no success
Bad Guy laughs and explain plan
Natsu says a cliched moral of friendship and -POP- A power Boost!
Natsu defeats bag guy
AND it Repeats!!!!

4) MAGIC: In one piece, they explain HOW they get their powers (by eating devil fruit), but this one, explains NOTHING... it's unbelievable

it deserves a 2/10 bigrazz agree or not

Edit: I just can't understand why people like Ecchi stuffs like that! I mean, i dont mind that genre but really, it completely ruins the manga. Also, I just hate Lucy! She is not even strong but a fanservice character with huge boobs as weapon! She is also annoying!
Also, too much comedy! It's as if they are forced to laugh! geez -.-

It's just so funny. I get myself laughing for stupid's things! And at the same time we have lots of surprises, and the characters are very , very charming, you cannot have just one favorite. Even though it has arc after arc, it ins't boring or confusing like other mangas can be. And people who think ''it's one piece imitation'' you are all wrong. Even the art i think is more cool, and i love one piece. And in the end, it have that thing of friendship and bounds that naruto, one piece, bleach and popular shonens mangas have. It's fun, it got a very good art (i don't care why or who) and you can be moved . Read it if you have the slightest interest, i certainly don't regret.

Fairy Tail can be summed up in one word; generic

I read Fairy Tail, I still check back for updates every week, but I wouldn't rate it as good.

It's generic shameless fun, nothing more and nothing less. I don't think deeply about it, because if I do, I will probably start disliking the manga.

Fairy Tail is a generic shounen manga about a guild full of 'mages', meaning, people who kick ass with things that cannot be explained with anything else but magic. I don't know about you, but when I think of magic, I think of Harry Potter, you know, people with wands, I don't think of people beating someone down with a fire punch. Anyways, these abilities are never explained in detail, nor are there any limitations on it, except of course, when the plot calls for it.

The main character is Natsu Dragneel, the pink haired boy who is just like any other loud-mouthed idiot from other shounen manga, who gets down to serious business when you hurt his friends. The second main character, who is just useless fanservice, is Lucy Heartfelia, who really only serves to get beaten up and have her clothes ripped up all the time (seriously, the amount of wardrobe changes she goes through only for it to be ruined the next chapter ...). There's not really a plot, other than 'awesome people do awesome stuff and get into awesome fights'. How awesome that is, is very much YMMV.

Right, did I mention Fairy Tail shoves the 'nakama' (for those less inclined with the cliche, it's all about the power of friendship) thing down your throat so much you want to throw up? This is the part where, if you think deeply about Fairy Tail, you'll hate it. If you treat it like the superficial entertainment it is, you'll fair a lot better.

The characters are nothing special, the plot is simply non existent, the fighting abilities are stupid and how powerful they are is based on how many friends they have backing them up, the fanservice (which he tries to hide ...) is stupid (no panty shots whatsoever, but he's okay with drawing every female with huge breast balloons and show them in suggestive poses and make them wear bunny suits, or have their clothes ripped off), and well ... the only thing Fairy Tail has got going is that the art evolved to be pretty damn good looking.

At first the art was just Rave Master all over again (or as people like to say, it looks like One Piece), but now Mashima has a style of his own ... though maybe that has a lot more to do with his assistant, who made Yankee-kun to Megane-chan, which has the same exact art style. But, whatever, the art looks good, and that's really the only positive point of Fairy Tail.

It can also be funny, as proven with chapter 227 Lucy Fire.

But it's mostly just generic shounen entertainment, with a heavy, sickening dose of 'nakama!'.

Read it if you feel like adding another manga to your list.
